This is the first year our auction league is getting a keeper. Teams can only have 1, and it's the price from last year plus 10% or a minimum of $10. My question is, in a .5 ppr, given that most people have a guy they can keep that will save them at least $10 from the "projected value", how will that affect pricing? For example, I will get to keep J.Graham for $11. I know someone else will keep Stafford for $10. Someone else has Julio Jones for $10. Cam Newton for $10, Cruz for $10, etc, etc.

Anybody out there who has had a draft like this that can share some tips please?

Our league is 10 team, .5ppr, qb,rb,rb,wr,wr,rb/wr,te,d,k with the only big scoring diff from a normal league being the qb gets 5 for a td pass.

Start by figuring out the amount of money available before keepers (12 team league with $200 budgets would be $2400) and then figure out the total cost of the projected keepers (or $11+$10+$10+10... etc. in your example pretend the final number is $120) and subtract from the total budget ($2400-$120 is $2280 for example). Then figure out what the cost for the keepers would be in a non-keeper style auction (so Stafford should go for $33, Cruz for $30 for example) and add those together. (We'll pretend that number is $360). Then subtract that number from your total budget ($2400-$360 for our example or $2040). Then subtract the true auction value of the keepers ($2040) from the keeper value prices ($2280) or ($2280-$2040=$240) Divide that difference by the projected cost of the keepers in a non-keeper league (or $240/$2040 in our example) to determine your vig which for us would 11.8%. Multiply that number by the projected auction value of non-keepers to determine what the increased price should be in your auction. For example if Foster is going for $50 in a normal auction, we'd multiply $50 by .118 to get 5.9 or a $5.9 increase in your league. Or you can just add a 1 at the beginning and multiply by 1.118 to get the value for your draft $55.9.

Sorry if that's confusing. Hope it helps.

Dude, totally awesome reply, thanks. I was having a hard time wrapping my head around the math on my own here (possibly due to drinking IPA and catching up on The League), but reading it as you wrote it out makes sense. I appreciate it.
